Now that's a proper reissue, with no silly upsizing. Good job, Hamilton.

Maybe you'll change your minds when you see the case back, it's held on with four screws.
What else? Well, Hamilton claim it is "an exact remake of the W10", but it ain't.
Replaced the original plexiglass for mineral glass.
Put 'mechanical' on the dial.
Grain dial instead of smooth.
Fake patina.
Vertical case brushing instead of horizontal.
Crappy lug pins instead of fixed bars.
For half the price you can get the real thing, and it will hold its value, if not increase over time.

What a fuck up.
